Hi everybody

I'm working on a Tobit model in GLLAMM.
This model uses the Identity link for the Gaussian distribution and the sprobit (scaled Probit) for the Binomial distribution. 
Does anyone know the reason why a 'scaled Probit' is used instead of an ordinary Probit? And is it also possible to use a Logit link instead? 

I found a similar question on this topic in the Statalist archive, but it was never answered.

Thanks in advance,
